Tall Intermediate Recycling Box with Matching Lid, Made of Sturdy Cardboard -- For Use in Office Suites/Shared Work Spaces
Free campus delivery. Available for MSU use only. Not available to the public.
Help your coworkers recycle more and landfill less by placing this Intermediate Recycling Box in a common area of the work space. Please note, a staff/faculty member within the office suite/work area must transfer the contents of this Intermediate Box periodically to the corresponding Hallway Station Recycling Bin, as the Intermediate Boxes are not serviced by IPF Custodial Staff. When placing your order, select the option for type of material you want to recycle: Office Paper, Mixed Paper, or Plastic/Metal. View the Campus Recycling Guide for a list of accepted materials for each type of recycling. Consider getting a box for each type if space allows and there is a need.
This Intermediate Recycling Box serves as the midway point in the three stage approach to convenient recycling. Stage 1) Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Boxes placed at individual work stations. Stage 2) Common Area Intermediate Boxes in shared spaces within the office suite/work area. Stage 3) Hallway Recycling Bins located in public spaces, which must be placed in approved locations if they are to be serviced by IPF Custodial Staff.
We suggest utilizing the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes, and transferring the contents periodically to the Common Area Intermediate Box, then coordinating with colleagues to periodically empty the shared Intermediate Box into the corresponding Hallway Bin. While it might seem excessive at first, and may not be necessary in all locations, making recycling accessible and convenient is a crucial factor in diverting material away from the landfill. If its determined that Intermediate Boxes are not necessary, we encourage simply transferring the contents from Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes into the corresponding Hallway Bin.
